Stertil-Koni announced its production facility in Streator, Illinois, is on track to produce its 15,000th Mobile Column Lift in 2021.
The significance of the milestone at the facility, Stertil ALM, is important. While Stertil-Koni offers a range of lifts, its Mobile Column Lifts represent its most popular lifting systems in North America. And growth is on a trajectory. These lifts, with capacities ranging from 14,000 lbs to 40,000 lbs per column, are indeed mobile. They permit users to safely lift a wide range of heavy-duty vehicles quickly and efficiently.
“From delivery vans and pumper trucks to school buses and fire engines, from agricultural vehicles and airport tugs to Class 8 tractor trailers and utility trucks, Stertil-Koni Mobile Column Lifts can easily raise them all,” explains Stertil-Koni president, Dr. Jean DellAmore.
Stertil-Koni Mobile Column Lifts, which use dependable hydraulic technology, are available in wireless, cabled, and EARTHLIFT models. All feature rapid lifting and lowering, maximum strength high tensile DOMEX steel, and full-color touch-screen controls. They also feature safe mechanical locking systems as well as overload protection and synchronization.
Continues DellAmore, “With such a feature-rich product, a keen focus on manufacturing excellence and product innovation is key to our collective success. We salute the efforts of Stertil ALM, its president, Allan Pavlick, and the entire team—enabling us to proudly offer the very best in Buy America-compliant lifting systems.”
The forthcoming production milestone follows a multi-year plant expansion at Stertil ALM. Previously, Stertil-Koni purchased a 4.5-acre parcel adjacent to its long-standing facility and completed a 36,000-ft expansion. Stertil-Koni designed the expansion to deliver enhanced flow and efficiencies in production.
What’s more, the growth at Stertil ALM is part of a long-term strategic initiative to boost its in-sourcing capabilities. Earlier, Stertil ALM added 14,000 sq ft of production space. This included the purchase of state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment as well as the construction of a modern, hands-on training center.
Concludes Dr. DellAmore, “Our sincerest congratulations to everyone at Stertil ALM on this momentous achievement—the production and delivery of world-class heavy-duty vehicle lifting systems that consistently set new industry standards in performance.”
